Coleraine set to discover Europa League fate thumbnailColeraine striker Jamie McGonigle, fresh from making his debut with the NI Under-21s in last week’s win over Belarus, will be back in action with his colleagues in the first of a series of pre-season friendlies at the Showgrounds this weekend

IRISH Cup finalists Coleraine will discover their Europa League opponents on Monday.
The Bannsiders will be included in the first round qualifier draw which takes place in Geneva.
Club chairman Colin McKendry and first team manager Oran Kearney are expected to attend the draw.
The first leg in the qualifiers will take place on Thursday June 29 with the second leg taking place a week later on Thursday July 6.
Officials will be hoping for either a kind draw - or a glamour game against Scottish opposition such as Rangers or St. Johnstone. Meanwhile, preparations are continuing for the new season with the first pre-season friendly lined up for the Showgrounds this weekend.
Welsh side Bangor City will provide the opposition as Coleraine try to put behind them the disappointment of that Irish Cup defeat to Rangers in May.
